Welcome to the Community

We are proud to be Your Hometown Utility

ERTH Power Corporation is a licensed distribution company (LDC) providing safe and reliable delivery of electricity to approximately 25,000 residential and commercial customers within our licensed boundaries. Areas that we currently service are the municipalities of Aylmer, Port Stanley, Belmont, Ingersoll, Thamesford, Otterville, Norwich, Burgessville, Beachville, Embro, Tavistock, Clinton, Mitchell, Dublin, and Goderich.

Understanding Your Bill

You can expect to receive your first ERTH Power bill within 6-8 weeks from the date you move in.

After that, you will receive a monthly bill around the same time each month. Your monthly bill includes three types of charges – delivery, electricity, and regulatory charges. The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) is responsible for regulating electricity prices for residential and small commercial consumers. Customers that live in the Town of Aylmer, Town of Goderich, or County of Oxford may also be billed by ERTH Power for water and sewer charges on behalf of the Municipality/County.
